I can't say as I have been impressed as I had decided as early as the titles announcement several months ago that, much like Identity Crisis, this was most definitely not for me.
There is a significant problem today with these event books in that they rely wholly an delivering shock value of the most cynical kind. With DC in particular these sort of titles don't exist to tell any kind of story as such, they exist to traumatise the characters and exploit their torture to.... no end or purpose.
There's no point to series like this and Doomsday Clock other than exploitation of the shallowest type and delivering a several book-long 'event' that will hit financial projections for the publishers balance sheet while leaving nothing at all in terms of being worth remembering, never mind reading
Just like Forever Evil, Before Watchmen or Identity Crisis - what is the point to this series if it offers nothing that adds something to the readers enjoyment of their reading their superheroes or is entertaining escapism?
I don't read superhero comics to be depressed and fed up at them.
